FDA's Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program (VCRP) is a reporting system for use by manufacturers, packers, and distributors of cosmetic products that are in commercial distribution in the United States.
Some Important Things to Know
The VCRP is a voluntary registration system for cosmetic products as defined by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), section 201(i); 21 USC 321(i). Drugs are subject to different FDA registration and marketing requirements (FD&C Act, sec. 510; 21 CFR 207). Depending on the claims made, some cosmetic products may also be drugs. If a cosmetic product is also a drug, it must comply with the requirements for both cosmetics and drugs.

What is Organic?

Your food choices have a lasting effect on your family and shape their eating habits, but shopping can be challenging when we’re all bombarded with food labels appearing in various sizes and forms on the packaging, in the ingredient list, or on stickers. The “Certified Organic” label can help you make informed decisions at the farmers’ market or the supermarket. Feeding your family organic food reduces your risk of exposure to pesticides, antibiotics, and

hormones, and promotes the development of long-lasting, good eating habits.

Organic certification is a certification process for producers of organic food and other organic agricultural products. In general, any business directly involved in food production can be certified, including seed suppliers, farmers, food processors, retailers and restaurants.

Requirements vary from country to country, and generally involve a set of production standards for growing, storage, processing, packaging and shipping that include:

What does ‘kosher’ mean?
The English word “kosher” is derived from the Hebrew root “kashér,” which means “to be pure, proper, or suitable for consumption”
Kosher Dietary Rules and Regulations.
The laws of kosher are complex and extensive. The intention of this guide is to acquaint the reader with some of the fundamentals of kashrut and provide insight into its practical application. Given the complex nature of the laws of kosher, one should consult an Orthodox Rabbi whenever an issue arises.
Though an ancillary hygienic benefit has been attributed to the observance of kashrut, the ultimate purpose and rationale is to conform to the Divine Will, as expressed in the Torah.
Not too long ago, most food products were made in the family kitchen, or in a small factory or store in the local community. It was relatively easy to ascertain if the product was reliably kosher. If Rabbinical supervision was required, it was attended to by the Rabbi of the community, who was known to all. Today, industrialization, transcontinental shipping and mass production have created a situation where most of the foods we eat are treated, processed, cooked, canned or boxed commercially in industrial settings, which can be located hundreds or thousands of miles away from home.
SQC Kosher Agency(SQC-KA) in collaboration with a number of independent rabbis in India, it audits and issues kosher certificates

As your partner for process excellence, we provide a variety of testing and pre-shipment inspection services customised to your needs and look after your interests on-site at a local level. Upon request, we can also take over end-to-end scheduling and project control on your behalf. The services include:

  • In-line Inspection: Focuses on controlling the quality of products by inspecting the production line/raw materials to identify potential problems that may result in defective end products. It is based on a ‘bottom-up’ or deductive approach.
  • Initial Production Inspection (IPI): Conducted at the beginning of the production cycle, when up to 20% of goods are produced. It is based on a ‘top-down’ or inductive approach, which first inspects the end products and then traces back any problems to the production line and raw materials.
  • During Production Inspection (DUPRO): Also based on a ‘top-down’ approach, occurs when the product cycle is about 20- 40% complete and product packing has started. 
  • Final Random Inspection (FRI): When the total consignment is completed and packed; a detailed inspection of randomly selected samples is carried out to check the quality, quantity and packaging conformity as per samples and specifications.
  • Construction Check: SQC performs a safety check on your products in the run up to production to help you avoid time consuming delays in delivery or costly rework. Within the scope of this examination, we check whether the correct components are being used in order to ensure long-term quality. The design check also provides important information for pre-shipment inspections.
  • Loading Supervisions: SQC monitors loading of goods on your behalf. We also inspect the condition of containers and verify the identity and quantity of goods. This enables us to initiate optimization measures on the spot, if necessary.
